A much-anticipated seventh album from Beyoncé has been released. 

Friday was the official release date of the project, despite leaks online days before 

Her previous solo album, "Lemonade," was recorded six years ago during the COVID-19 pandemic.

On her website, Beyoncé wrote: "To my fans, I hope this music makes you feel joyful. 

I hope it helps you let go of your wiggles. Ha! And to be happy and feel strong. Love you deep, B."
